Joe McKnight

Police said Gasser and McKnight exchanged words in a traffic incident in a New Orleans suburb. Gasser reportedly remained at the scene and handed his gun over to police voluntarily. Although he hasn’t spoken publicly, he is presumably claiming he shot McKnight in self-defense.

According to police, McKnight did not have a gun either on his body or in his car.

As I write this and continue to re-read all the facts that I have currently, I am utterly shocked at this news. I’m hoping I have something wrong, because with eyewitnesses, police reports and more I do not know how this man can be freely walking the streets of New Orleans.

J0e McKnight was just 28 years old.

MFST sends its condolences to the McKnight family.
